    You do have to cut up everything really small though (for the bento style, think has about 6 sections?). If packing a sandwich I have to cut into 6 squares and split between 2 sections. It's great for cut fruit, veges etc. I've also been cutting up cheese, Salami sticks, made mini banana muffins, date balls, etc. Yet to find a healthy cracker small enough, I might need to make my own.

    I got dd one of these. Her mt can go in the bottom and lunch in the top compartment. I would like to buy one of the bento style ones but I love buying containers and anything kitchen really (i also have a stationary addiction) and if i bought one of the compartment lunch boxes i wouldnt be able to use many containers 😄

    I've done some browsing and it appears there are a few stores that have them in stock (yay!).

    I think the Yumbox will suit DS well, considering he eats mostly cut up salad items and crackers (won't eat sandwiches).

    We've got a yumbox and I put it in a medium fridge to go cooler bag that fits the banana, yoghurt and apple, this is heaps of food for her and she generally doesn't finish it, but on the days I pack less typically she's starving 😂

    Default Reveal. ... Your kids lunch box

    I've got the yumbox as well but found its a lot smaller than the planetbox ( DS eats lots!) so I'm keeping it for afternoon tea snacks or excursions

    It definitely is smaller than some and when dd gets bigger she will have a go green, my DS will likely start with a go green because he eats far more than she does but I do find I can squeeze a fair bit in there

    Both of my girls have the smiggle one's like this. I put a sandwich and their brain food (aka...sip 'n' crunch food) in the top and anything else for play time and lunch time in the bottom. Both girls know that they have to eat their brain food at first break and their other lunch item at from the top section for lunch time and anything else they can take or leave.

    I also went out and brought 12 containers of exactly the same size, with the same lids so every morning when I do lunches there is no stress of finding containers and lids that match. The containers are big enough for chopped fruit or dry biscuits or a piece of cake/protein ball etc and they stack perfectly in the lunch box along with a freezer brick.

    oh and the best thing, I chuck them in the washing machine regularly and they wash up perfectly and dry overnight.

    This is good to hear! I bought Smiggle lunchboxes for my kids this year. I use containers for their food and liked the size of the Smiggle lunchbox.

    I was undecided about 1 big lunch box or lots of little containers. Hopefully this works okay, but if not I plan on using it for myself!
    Lunch bots are really good. My husband has this one and the launch planet box for his lunches. I have the Quattro lunch bot (so four spaces) for DS's snacks etc when we got out. We've had them for over 3 years now and they've been dropped a million times and have barely a mark!

    No pics, but we use PlanetBox (got them from Biome). I wasn't sure due to size and price (I needed to buy 4!!), but I did it and they are AMAZING!

    They fit more than enough food for my bottomless pits, and are just so easy to clean and use. Love them. Definitely worth the money if you can spare it. We used them for a full year and still look brand new. They will last MANY more years I reckon!
